George Eustice opens new specialist care home

The refurbishment of a granite chapel attached to a care-home in Hayle in West Cornwall, located between Camborne and Penzance, has been officially opened by George Eustice MP.

The renovation and restoration to the Downes Residential Care Home, which is situated in a grade 2 listed historic building first built in the 1880s, has seen the capacity increase from 17 to 31 residents who have learning disabilities or require round the clock dementia care. The transformation has seen the chapel turned into 14 flats, whilst retaining original characteristics of the building which was first built in 1926.

George Eustice MP for Camborne, Redruth & Hayle, “The Downes Care Home has been providing specialist care to those who need it most since 2010. This refurbishment is great news for the care home and will allow more specialist care to be provided to residents with learning difficulties and those needing round the clock care. I would like to thank all the staff who work here for the fantastic work that they do in providing care to residents and I wish the care home every success for the future.”
